Designing this space we looked to find products and materials that were created with passion and express authenticity, minimalism, and sustainability. We have always loved objects and materials that speak a mindful yet minimalist language. To fully experience the essence and true beauty of a material, it was important to design minimalist spaces with authentic and sustainable materials and artisanal products. We have sourced wonderful materials and products from artisans locally as well as from Mexico and Europe. We feature beautiful products from Object in Tijuana, who were essential in helping source most of the accessories and furniture, as well as Marrea Decor with their beautiful pillows and throws.
Mindful Minimalist Hotel Event Venue with Lobby and Roof Deck
This listing includes the lobby, the roof deck & 1 room. This space is modern minimalism at its finest, luxurious design with all natural materials. Although it only has four rooms, it is a powerful example of a conversion that is as aesthetically appealing and luxurious as it is conscientious. Anke’s story is one of true transformation, both of space and personal daring, to create a place that exudes and allows goodness. This space is perfect for your next:
• Team Meeting
• Company Offsite
• Private Party
• Dinner Event
• Creative Meeting
• Group Work Session
• Private Retrea
Inspired by Balinese and Japanese architecture, the hotel is the product of multiple architects hailing from Canada, Zimbabwe, and Brazil. Intended to harmonize the twelve human senses according to Rudolf Steiner’s theory, including those lesser known, like temperature and balance, the micro-hotel is itself a study in design as an equilibrium of self, space, and earth.
The eco-conscious space boasts all natural and non-toxic materials, recycled and locally sourced where possible. Everything has been thought of, from Zero VOC paint and compostable trash bags to metal-free beds. Anke employed local green builders to bring her vision to life. Sustainable aerobarrier glue, spray-in cellulose, and the latest Mitsubishi mini splits were used to insulate and reduce energy consumption. All exterior wood is burned shou sugi ban style for natural fire prevention, and all interior wood is reclaimed or naturally beetle killed and/or naturally treated. The bathrooms are designed by Cecilie Manz with Duravit.
The decor is equally aspirational and expressive of the four elements (earth, air, fire, and water) with supple organic fabrics and wools and touches like wallpaper from recycled shoe leather, cork walls, tiles made from recycled ocean plastics and volcanic ash, and handmade mohair throws that fund art therapy for developmentally disabled children. Inspired by the warmth and aesthetics of Mexico, Anke has sought out hammocks, ceramics, rugs, lamps, and coffee makers from artisans in Oaxaca, Ixtapa, Tijuana and Guadalara.
